2015 BALLE Conference Vision Speaker Session: Entrepreneurship and Financing for the Future We Want

Amanda Cabot, the founder of Dansko, a national footwear company owned by its employees, and Matt Stinchcomb, Executive Director of Etsy.org — begin this session with their experience and vision for how businesses can scale ethically and stay true to their founding missions. Next, four of North America’s leading thinkers and doers in the field of mission-aligned finance (Leah Hunt Hendrix of Solidaire, Dana Pancrazi of Capital Markets and The F.B. Heron Foundation, Esther Park of Commons Stock, and Carmen Rojas of The Workers Lab) describe how the conventional financial system is maintaining a system of inequality and how we can expand the path to building community wealth and wellness instead.
